Teele Square...up & coming friendly neighborhood

I've lived in Teele Square for four years now, and I like it more every day. It's just down the street from (the more widely known) Davis Square, and you can see Boston's Prudential Tower from Holland Street (heading towards Davis). Teele Square is full of densely-populated neighborhoods, made up of primarily young professionals, college students (Tufts is just around the corner), and families young and old. Several of the families on my street have lived here for 20+ years.

At the neighborhood pub, PJ Ryan's, you might run into a townie who will tell you that 20 or 30 years ago Teele Square was not at all what it is today. From what I've heard there were a couple of somewhat rundown bars where fights broke out regularly, there were no restaurants or cafes, and the population was quite different. Not to mention the Square's proximity to Whitey Bulger's old stomping grounds: Winter Hill.
